Giro Nine or Giro S4
So what is the difference? Is one better than the other?
i don't care as long as the bassline is pumpin / the drumline bangin away / make one move and i'll blow you away / one false move and i'll blow you away
One is an "inmold" construction the other is a two piece. The basic difference, the 9 is not made to take more than one "bad" fall. The shell deforms to absorb the impact. The s4 is more durable but much heavier.
I have owned both, I liked the 9 better but it only lasted a week before I had 4 major deformations from falls.
The nine looks more like are "freestyle" helmet.
